Sexual And Bigoted Remarks By Broward Democrat Officials Met With Silence From Party Leaders & Legacy Media

Recent news that two of Broward’s elected leaders made inappropriate sexual and/or bigoted remarks while conducting official business inside City Hall was met with silence from the other lawmakers, Democratic Party officials and even the legacy media. On June 9, 2022, REDBROWARD reported how Tamarac Vice Mayor Elberg Mike Gelin directed two bigoted remarks at fellow Commissioner Elvin Villalobos. One week later, REDBROWARD revealed a Human Resources investigation showed Plantation Councilman Nick Sortal made inappropriate sexual and racial remarks to a longtime city employee.

Both men are on the November ballot in races against incumbent female mayors. Both men, and their opponents, are Democrats. As of today, the Sun-Sentinel wrote about the Sortal investigation. Nothing about Gelin’s anti-Hispanic remarks to Villalobos. Nothing else. No angry statements from lawmakers representing Tamarac and Plantation on the State and local levels. No rebukes from Democrat Party leaders or activists.

Mike Gelin is running against Mayor Michelle Gomez. During a Tamarac Commission meeting, Gelin claimed Villalobos thought “Latin American rules” applied in Florida.

“This is America. We have freedom of speech,” Gelin lectured. “That should be explained to the Commissioner who may still think that Latin American rules apply in America. And it doesn’t.”

“Excuse me? Excuse me? What do you mean that it doesn’t apply to Latin America, Vice Mayor?” Villalobos asked.

Later, Gelin stated the City Attorney needed to better educate Commissioners, “Who may not understand how this country is governed.”

While filing his paperwork to run against Plantation Mayor Lynn Stoner, Nick Sortal told a black female deputy clerk that “My dick is hard” for a battle with Stoner. Then, after learning there were no black candidates for Mayor, Sortal said, “Oh good, Plantation will never have a black mayor.”

Even though he admitted to making the comments, Nick Sortal spent a week trying to smear anyone reporting the facts. Despite being a former reporter, Sortal urged his supporters to attack the Sun-Sentinel story by Lisa Huriash. Now, Sortal and his allies want to track down the source of the story even though he made a third admission at last Wednesday’s council meeting.

Nick Sortal

Inappropriate sexual remarks. Bigoted remarks against Hispanics. Bigoted remarks against Blacks. Smear and pressure campaigns against the media.

Yet, crickets from the legacy media and party leaders.

This is not “dirty politics” as Sortal claims. This is no ginned up Republican plot.

These two Democrat men are running against two Democrat women.

These two men made bigoted remarks within their City Halls while conducting official business.

Is there no accountability?

Voters in Tamarac and Plantation have noticed.

Are Democrat Party leaders and media types so out of touch with their local constituents that they think it’s ok to ignore this unacceptable behavior from grown men?

Are Democrat leaders and local media so distracted by Governor Ron DeSantis and national politics that they would allow elected officials to spew sexual and racial comments to females and minorities without consequence?

Shame on them.

Judy Stern & Broward Democrats Throwing A Party For Orlando Candidate

randolphellisonSusannah Randolph, Democrat candidate for US Congress District 9, has enlisted the help of consultant Judy Stern and other Broward Democrats. On December 20th, Stern, a local salami sandwich doyenne, and Congresswoman Lois Frankel are hosting a fundraiser for the Orlando Democrat. Randolph is running against Fl. State Rep. Darren Soto.

A December 10th email from host Joanne Goodwin to local Democrats attacks Soto as a “so called Democrat.” She claims Soto votes against women’s health issues, domestic violence and alimony. Goodwin claims Soto, “Voted against Planned Parenthood and for the mandatory ultrasound bill and personhood.” Goodwin forgets to mention a huge endorsement Randolph received on December 9th.

On her Facebook page, Randolph announced:

Randolph scores Rep. Ellison Endorsement!

“Susannah is a true Progressive Democrat with a lifelong commitment to grassroots organizing and helping Democrats win. I am proud to support her campaign and I look forward to working with her in Congress to build the bench of Progressive, Democratic candidates.” -Congressman Keith Ellison

Thank you, Congressman Ellison!

Who is Rep. Keith Ellison?

Ellison is a Muslim-American attorney from Minnesota. According to Breitbart.com, “The Little Mogadishu neighborhood is represented by Democrat congressman Keith Ellison, who liberals proudly tout as the first Muslim-American Congressman. Ellison – who famously swore his oath of office on a Koran – has been a key player in public attacks on those seeking to expose the threat of radical Islam….”

Will Ellison attend the luncheon at the Casablanca Cafe? Stay tuned.sterninvote

 

Move on? “Rambling” Judy Stern Pesters Rep. George Moraitis At Fort Lauderdale Chamber Breakfast

Bob Norman’s favorite uber-lobbyist, Judy Stern took time off from organizing the Broward Democrat machinery to harangue her “favorite” member of the Florida House of Representatives, George Moraitis. Stern’s daughter Barbara, was crushed by Moraitis in 2010; Rumors abound that the Stern’s will challenge the him again in 2012.

Thursday morning, Moraitis and Sen Ellyn Bogdanoff appeared at the Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. On Wednesday, Stern encouraged her Facebook friends to confront them:

It is up to the democratic party to make sure the voters in 2012 know that the Republican state legislators, as well as those in Washington, have crusaded since last November to dismantle the public education system, destroyed medicare and medicaid, and working hard to remove the middle class from any existance in this country.Yesterday at 4:15am

You and your friends should attend the Chamber breakfast with Bogdanoff and Moraitis tomorrow and let them know how you feel. Yesterday at 8:59am

According to witnesses, Ms. Stern gave a rambling performance at the Chamber this morning. Her long-winded diatribe to Rep. Moraitis drew guffaws from the bipartisan audience. Some asked Stern if “she had a question” in hopes of her getting to her point.

Sources tell RED BROWARD Stern was upset Moraitis did not support a bill regarding candidates names on the ballot. In a sweet twist of irony, Stern supports limiting candidates to names they are known by in business instead of using tactics to appeal to certain voting segments or to gain higher placement on the ballot. Moraitis said the confusing bill did not merit suppport because Florida faces much more important issues.

Will Stern’s performance will keep Republicans from currying favor with her tactics in 2012? Too soon to tell, this is Broward county after all.
